Given Bristol's media lanscape, dominated as it is by organisations with little time for unions - this is a story you're unlikley to read in the evening post! Bristol NUJ write: "A demonstration will take place on Tuesday April 17 against Northcliffe’s plans to slash up to 19 of the Bristol Evening Post’s remaining 56 editorial posts. The Galleries shopping centre is hosting an exhibition of Post memorabilia in celebration of the paper’s 80th anniversary. It opens at 6.30pm and a group of people active in the anti-cuts movement plan a protest at the same time. NUJ Bristol Branch will be there too and we urge any colleagues who can to come along shortly before 6.30pm. Details of where to meet will follow shortly. Branch chair Paul Breeden says: “We will focus our protest on the ludicrous decisions made by Northcliffe’s national management over the last few years which have led to crisis after crisis. “We will also highlight the company’s continuing profits and returns to shareholders as well as bonuses to senior figures including Viscount Rothermere, who inherited the company and retains control even though he doesn’t have a majority of the shares. I hope you’ll show your solidarity with the Post chapel, and support for the vibrant media which Bristol needs but which Northcliffe looks likely to deny.”

16-04-2012 12:50It is safe to say that an overwhelming majority of Australians would, particularly if asked by a stranger, or a pollster ‘recognise Australia’s Indigenous People and culture’, or reply that ‘it is important to recognise the cultural diversity of the nation’. This is easy to talk about, and this is where the effort stops. Despite the strong attendance at Australia Day events - mainly welcomed by a general sense of hedonism - and despite an outwardly ‘nice’ disposition towards the recognition of Indigenous Australians, the date of the celebrations remains a source of challenge and, for the few who care, of national embarrassment.
